Entrepreneur, actress, producer and author, Jodie Sweetin garnered the love of millions in her role as Stephanie Tanner on ABC’s long-running, hugely popular sitcom “Full House,” which still airs in syndication. She recently returned to her role as Stephanie in the highly anticipated spinoff, “Fuller House,” which Netflix immediately renewed for a second season just 5 days after it premiered and the success of the second season garnered an instant third season pick up. The return of “Fuller House” has been a favorite across numerous generations and most recently won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Premium Comedy Series, the Kids Choice Award for Favorite Family TV Show as well as the 2016 Teen Choice Award for Choice TV: Comedy along with being nominated for Choice TV: Chemistry.
Jodie also starred with her actress friends Beverley Mitchell and Christine Lakin in the unscripted comedy, “Hollywood Darlings,” which premiered on POP TV this past April. In addition to co-starring, Jodie served as co-Executive Producer on the project. In 2016, Jodie was the 3rd most googled actress of the year and the 6th most searched subject on Yahoo. Last year, Jodie lit up the dance floor on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” where she partnered with Keo Motsepe.
Originally from Orange County, Jodie always knew she wanted to be an entertainer. Her mom saw that she loved performing and at 3 1/2 years old, she began doing a few print ads and commercials. She soon booked her breakout role in “Full House,” and secured her spot in pop culture with her cute lisp and catchy tag line, “How rude!”
In 2009, Jodie published her memoir, UnSweetined, documenting her life growing up in the spotlight and the years after. Jodie wrote the book as a means to show that she was human, had faults, but most importantly, she had strength and courage. In sharing her story, she hopes she has been able to help others confront their issues head-on and move forward.
In her rare spare time, Jodie loves to dive into a good book. Jodie lives in Los Angeles and usually keeps busy going on adventures with her daughters, Zoie and Beatrix.
